Gender Representation in the NYT Arts Section

This was a really fun project! 

I decided to look at the Arts section on 1/5/16 of my local paper, The New York Times. What I wanted to learn was how often men and women are represented both as authors and within the article content itself. 

Here's an overview of my process:


I looked at some of the more sophisticated online data tools but they weren't really supporting the question I had. So I kept the analysis pretty manual. Hope to use them more in the future though.

Here's my first pass. Note: I'm not a graphic designer, but may work on giving it some more design love in another iteration.
